HEY-HO, WHADDA YA KNOW, SUPPORT FOR ROE HAS GOTTA GO:

HILL ON ROBERTS: 'WADE' AND SEE (Ian Bishop, July 29, 2005, NY Post)

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton seems to be hedging on her 2000 campaign vow to make support for legalized abortion a litmus test for Supreme Court nominees.

Asked yesterday if court pick John Roberts' position on Roe vs. Wade would make or break her vote, Clinton said, "I'm going to wait to hear his answers to the Judiciary Committee . . . I want to see the facts, the evidence. I want to see more documents."


A pro-abortion litmus test doesn't play in the general.

Hillary: "I want to see more documents".

Various US Attorneys and special counsels and congressional investigators: "So would we, and we have the legal right to them".
